Been thinking of putting up a business for over a year now.  But i really find it hard to choose what my business should be.  I just feel that somehow that my business concept that ill be having will somehow fail.  Hope you guys could give some business ideas...

    Why do you think your concept will fail. If you`re going to make it in business you should have a "no quit" and "failure is not an option" mentality

    Belief in yourself is a critical competency for any entrepreneur. So what if you do fail? It`s only a failure if you don`t try (sounds corny but true). Let me just say that every start-up fails or better yet has "failures." It`s how you handle those failures and then make the changes necessary that will shape your success.
    Do your homework prior to opening the business and don`t go it alone!
    Good luck!

    Information is really very powerful. Thank you guys for giving me some good advice and ideas about starting up a business. I did go to some other forums, especially forums for business people like http://www.schmoozii.com and www.linkedin.com..These sites as well as startupnation have greatly help me understand things about business.
